NAPSA Release Publication on Pretrial and Affordable Care Act

As part of its commitment to informing the pretrial services field of the most up-to-date and relevant developments, NAPSA is proud to release a report titled, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Pretrial System: A "Front Door" to Health and Safety. The publication describes ways in which the ACA expands access to treatment at pretrial decision points, interrupting cycles of crime that are exacerbated by physical and behavioral health issues. Research for this publication was funded by the Public Welfare Foundation and completed by the Crime and Justice Institute. NAPSA will be hosting a webinar in the coming months for pretrial practitioners to learn more about this issue.
